Why is "L'uomo non da la birra al ragazzo" incorrect, but in some other cases the absence of article corresponds to a definite article in Italian, like "Bevo l'acqua" - I drink water?

I translated this with 'la birra' and was marked wrong. Quite arbitrary in my view. Could easily be either la birra or birra
